Again, the secondary resistance is divided by the square of the turns ratio because it was reflected. The mutual inductance is represented by shunt inductor, Lm, because the magnetizing current is not coupled to the load. Resistor Rc is also placed in shunt to represent the core loss resulting from hysteresis and eddy currents in the core. The stray capacitances between turns of the coils are represented by a capacitor connected across each pair of terminals. This capacitance is larger for coils with more turns.

The henry (H) is the unit of measurement for inductance. A circuit has a 1 H inductance if a current changing at a rate of 1 A/s produces an induced counter-emf of 1 V. In an inductive circuit with ac applied, an opposition to current flow is created by the inductance. This opposition is known as inductive reactance (Xl). The inductive reactance of a given ac circuit is determined by the inductance of the circuit and the rate of current change. 12 Purely inductive circuit: (a) circuit diagram; (b) representative waveforms; (c) vector representation.

The average load for a given period divided by the output capacity of the power plant. Under ideal conditions, both the load factor and the capacity factor are unity (100 percent). Commercial power systems use a number of three-phase generators connected in parallel, and synchronized in phase, to supply the load requirements. 2 lists general technical details for different types of common power plants. 1 Fuel Type Fossil Fuel Power Plants The most frequently used fuels for large-scale power generation are oil, natural gas, and coal [7].
